The German put in a good showing for the Blues as they recovered from an opening defeat in the group to smash Steaua Bucuresti 4-0 in Romania.
Schurrle received praise for his display from manager Jose Mourinho after the match, and he is hoping that he has done enough to warrant keeping his place.
"We were the better team from the first minute and we played with confidence," Schurrle told the media.
"I always want to start so that is good and I want to try and keep helping the team."
